my ADD prevents RSI

Cyber Lotus Imagecybersutra #3 / ADD prevents RSI

Where the 80s had chronic fatigue syndrome, the 90s had attention deficit disorder (ADD) and repetitive stress injuries (RSI). The former was not only preferable, but was and is, i would argue, a useful adaptation to life in these times.

When friends began to suffer the stains and arrows of shooting pain in wrists, arms, necks and fingers–the wages of logging too much time at a keyboard–i never did. my ADD prevents undue repetition and i tend away from doing the same thing the same way twice in a row. i also avoid stepping on cracks for the sake of my mother’s dorsal region, but that’s more an OCD thing.

What’s up with these back-channels? Not having a laptop has been a bit of an obstacle to my tuning in for a bit of participant-observation. So, I’ll have to rely on reports from afar. Do send them, particularly if you can enlighten me about these practices of the back-channel. […]
